Important note about Macmillan Grade Sync
- It’s Important for students to connect their Blackboard and Macmillan accounts (complete Single-Sign-On) for Macmillan grades to sync with the Blackboard gradebook.
- We recommend for students to complete registration directly through Blackboard.
- Direct students to this article for help completing Single-Sign-On.
- Advise students to disregard the instructions on their Macmillan access cards.
- If students do not complete Single-Sign-On, Macmillan grades will not sync with Blackboard.
